Incompetence

There is nothing more unattractive than incompetence
Naivety falls in the face of experience,
Ignorance is beaten by education,
Even idiocy can be overcome with patience.
But incompetence,
Incompetence is when confident blind belief meets abilities harsh reality
And we stupidly just keep on trying any way.

A Little Lie To Comfort Me

Wanting not that which ye hold so high
Leaves this heart of mine contented
For it can not fail were it does not try
It remains free from the tormented

I suffer not so far from that place
That ye make epic trek to find
Loves game is but a fools race
Which is never merciful nor kind

Joyous solitude stands alone
To watch the rough waves of emotion
Little boats are shook and blown
Into the deeps of the ocean

I don’t remember, I don’t remember
My mothers in the kitchen
Drunk, alone, weeping

Was it raining on the day?
I don’t remember, I don’t remember
They put her in the ground
She was gone forever
